Product Overview

Description
  • Dietary Supplement
  • L-5-Hydroxytryptophan
  • Supports Normal Sleep Cycles

5-HTP (L-5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an intermediate in the natural conversion of the essential amino acid, tryptophan, to serotonin. Clinical studies have shown that 5-HTP increases the amount and availability of serotonin produced by the body. Increased brain serotonin levels may produce positive effects on emotional well-being, appetite regulation, melatonin production and maintaining a healthy sleep cycle. Source Naturals 5-HTP is naturally derived from the seeds of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia.

Suggested Use

1 to 2 capsules once or twice daily with a glass of water. Start with 1 capsule per day, increasing dosage up to 4 capsules daily as needed. Do not exceed the recommended dose.

Other Ingredients

Microcrystalline cellulose, gelatin (capsule), colloidal silicon dioxide, and magnesium stearate

Warnings

In some people, nausea, headaches, nasal congestion, or constipation may occur. If these symptoms occur, lower the dose, or spread the dose throughout the day. Discontinue use if any of these symptoms persist for more than three days. If you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or breastfeeding, taking prescription medication such as antidepressant SSRI's, MAO inhibitors or sedatives, or if you have heart disease, consult your physician before using this product.

~ Very pleased!

Posted by Reviewer2266808 on Jan 22, 2008

~ I've had a long standing problem with non-situational depression. 5-HTP has proved very effective in providing me relief and is now an integral part of my daily health regime to maintain my chemical/emotional balance.

Great product

Posted by Reviewer3328025 on Aug 09, 2009

This really works to reduce appetite, without the side effects of sleepiness and constipation. An excellent company - their mint-flavored sub-lingual melatonin is the best of its kind.

Works like a dream

Posted by Reviewer2569979 on Jun 06, 2006

I take this about a half hour before bedtime, and it improves the quality of my sleep without being addictive. I also notice an improvement in the evenness of my moods. Great stuff!
